In order to achieve fast speeds, the team of Hennessey Special Vehicles has had any design of new, or almost (design, chassis and carbon fiber body) in order to have the lowest drag possible.
“We expect the Venom F5, name of the winds of the tornado the most powerful on the Fujita scale, the first car capable of over 300 mph (482 km/h) and we have worked closely with Pennzoil to make this bar,” said John Hennessey, founder and chief executive officer.
Mated to a-speed automatic gearbox clutch single in 7 reports, the new V8 twin-turbo will send more than 1, 600 hp to the rear tires, while dragging an empty weight of 1 298 kg. This combination of power, low drag and light weight should allow the 0 to 300 km/h in less than 10 seconds, making the Hennessey Venom F5 faster than any Formula 1 car today.
The 0 – 400 – 0 could be reached in less than 30 seconds, while the maximum speed is expected to increase to the 485 km/h. What to relegate to the rank of a turtle, the impressive Koenigsegg Agera RS which recently broke the record for the 0 – 400 – 0 and that maxes out at only 440 km/h.
The price ? More than 1.6 million (1 380 000 €) and Hennessey has already announced that production would be limited to only 24 copies. Otherwise, for much cheaper you can offer in Hennessey a big pickup, supercharged with 6 wheels : the VelociRaptor 6×6.
